Here at Revive we offer many variations of Sports Massage depending on your lifestyle, chosen sports and physiology. These mentioned are just an example and all treatments will be assessed and tailored on a case by case basis.
Whatever your problem, there will be an approach that we can recommend!
Sports massage is a systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body that focuses on muscles relevant to a particular sport and/or injury.
This makes sports massages ideal to treat injuries and as well as a preventative treatment dealing with the health of muscle and connective tissue, the range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture.
Deep Tissue Massage is slow, deep, and very specific – working either against or with the fibres of muscles, tendons or ligaments.
Deep tissue massage can break up and eliminate scar tissue from previous injuries.
Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. Deep-tissue massage can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.
Myofascial release therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses.
Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue.
Other conditions treated by myofascial release therapy include Temporo-Mandibular Joint disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia or migraine headaches.
